The secretary’s report was read by Nathan Linke and approved as read. Treasurer Xavier Baysinger reported on receiving a $200 check for barrel setting.  Aaron presented a bill for printer ink for record book pages and candy for 4-H week. Paying the bill and the treasurer’s report as presented were approved.
Hope Baysinger gave a report on barrel setting. Aaron and Nathan Linke told about their participation in Western Junior Livestock Show. Spens Schlicht talked about Record Books, and Sutton gave a report on 4-H week. For National 4-H Week, Leader Paula Linke visited the elementary classrooms where 4-H members talked about their favorite part of 4-H, and handed out green caramel apple suckers to anyone wearing green.
Under Old Business, discussion was held about getting signed up for the Skyzone trip on Nov. 11.  Getting the barrel setting shifts filled on Oct. 22-23 was also discussed.

Leader Paula talked about getting this year’s individual goals set and what they need to do in order to earn awards in this coming year. Each member was asked to write down their goals, along with the steps for achieving the goal.
